In this live Zoom presentation, artist B. Lynch describes her puppet-making process, sharing images of in-progress and finished objects and exploring the techniques she used to create the characters in the time-bending universe of the Reds and the Greys in the exhibit Pull Back the Curtain. Lynch does not consider herself a puppeteer, but rather a visual artist who uses performative objects. She uses oversized masks, tiny puppets, full-size hand puppets, and large figurines in installation setups and performative videos.

Lynch’s art looks at the corrosive effect of income disparity on our society and democracy. She uses puppetry, drawing, painting, linoleum block prints, and digital animation to create precisely rendered, meticulously detailed characters and environments.

Lynch was the featured Centerfold Gallery artist in the July/August 2021 issue of Artscope magazine. She is a recipient of a Fellow award from the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, an Artist’s Resource Trust Award from the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, and a Project Grant from the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation. Her work has been shown in solo exhibitions at museums and universities across the country. Lynch lives and works in Jamaica Plain, a neighborhood of Boston, in a handmade house and studio with a garden of fruits, vegetables, and flowers.

This event will take place via Zoom and Facebook Live. A recording will be made available here afterward.
